SPONSORED PRODUCT: Next Steps Marking Systems Rated Excellent

Written by: HTU | Published:

“Marking of writing is excellent. It clearly informs pupils how well they have done and what they need to do to improve. In maths, ‘Fix It’ time allows pupils to look at their mistakes and check how they can improve.” Ofsted, November 2013.

Did you know that Dimensions Curriculum has devised two fun, high-impact marking systems which Ofsted are now recommending to schools across the country.

Best Buds is a whole-school maths marking system using characters, Flash, Fuzzy and Fluff. Their universal appeal ensures that pupils are motivated and actively engaged in the marking process. The system is under-pinned by peer support tools and the identification of clear next steps.

SixTicks is a marking system for writing which enables teachers to quickly create success criteria for a vast range of text types. These can be differentiated and tailored to groups of pupils or individuals. This criteria then becomes the focus for identifying next steps, leading to accelerated progress in writing.

Did you know that Dimensions is the home of Fix-It Time? The marking follow-up element, Fix-It Time, ensures pupils have built-in opportunities and clear strategies for improving and developing their work.
